Overheard at Panera this morning: clueless suburban dad, dressed in his casual clothes, taking his time getting coffee and telling another customer he was probably going to make his kids late for school, which made him “a bad person”. Says he, “I don’t know how my wife and my nanny do it.”
Yes, I did manage to walk away without thumping him upside the head.
This irritated me in part because I was up at 5:30 this morning to make a breakfast casserole for an event this weekend and then get the girls up and ready to go before I left for work. But it irritated me mostly because Dear Husband is usually the one up at the crack of dawn, doing chores around the house and feeding the one child who eats breakfast. And he still manages to get to the office early most days. Amazing how he can multitask. Perhaps he could give this guy some pointers.
